Lawyers to former chief of defense staff, Air Chief Marshall Alex Badeh have expressed concern over his health, following his continued detention by the EFCC, even as they faulted the too stringent bail conditions being sought to ensure his freedom.
In a letter to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Badeh’s lawyers alleged that the EFCC may be acting out a script by placing obstacles in the former CDS’ path to freedom, even when he has cooperated with the commission since the commencement of his interaction with them over alleged corrupt practices under his watch.
The position of the lawyers seems to confirm earlier reports that the EFCC is out to humiliate the former Air Force Chief and later Chief of Defence Staff for yet unclear reasons.
According to the lawyers, the EFCC is aware of the health challenges being faced by Badeh, and managing such ailments while in detention may tend to further worsen his situation, even as they expressed surprise at the sudden change stories by EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu, who had earlier given his words that Chief Badeh will be released immediately.
They faulted the application for the extension of his detention at a Magistrate Court in Lagos, where he was whisked to, immediately the EFCC refused him coming from his house to attend sessions with them, citing possible witching and attempts to further embarrass the man against whom nothing incriminating has so far been established.
Sources in the EFCC confirmed that there are further plans to move Alex Badeh from Lagos to Port Harcourt, even as there seems no immediate plans to release him even on health grounds.
Members of his family are also said to be apprehensive, as their bread winner may not have been getting the deserved medical attention, while in consecration, calling on the EFCC to consider the man’ s contributions to the country, and allow him to return home and face charges against him if any.
